Jennifer + Michael’s Hand Lettered Gold and White Wedding Invitations

These elegant wedding invitations from Alex of Goodheart Design incorporate delicate blind impression details, whimsical hand lettering, and a whole lot of gold ink! Simple, sophisticated, and absolutely beautiful.


From AlexThis was a super fun invitation to create! It was for a friend who wanted something simple and elegant with a little bit of a Spanish twist. All three pieces were letterpress printed by Czar Press on 110# pearl Lettra paper with gold ink for the lettering and wording and blind pressed (no ink) vines. The blind pressed vines added just enough Spanish detail without overdoing it.


The bride chose envelopes in three different colors, which was an amazing choice, and I hand addressed each outer and inner envelope with gold ink. I love being able to incorporate my hand lettering into the invitation as well as on the envelopes – I think it adds a beautiful consistency to whole suite.





Thanks Alex!

Jessica + Chris’s Navy and Hot Pink Lace-Inspired Wedding Invitations

Navy and hot pink is such a classic color combination – especially when paired with beautiful lace-inspired details! Jackie from Sincerely, Jackie sent over this elegant invitation suite with modern hot pink edge painting and blind impression lace patterns. So pretty!


From Jackie: I absolutely love when couples come to me looking for classic, elegant designs with a fun, individual twist. Jessica and Chris wanted their invitations to exude simplicity at first glance, but a bit of fun and whimsy when you look a bit closer. The entire suite is letterpress printed on 220lb double thick bright white Crane’s Lettra cotton paper and feature classic navy blue ink, blind (no ink) lace impressions, and then accented with a perfectly playful pop of hot pink edging. The blind lace impression is my personal favorite detail, which gives a sweet nod to Jessica’s all-lace gown.




Jess and Chris really wanted their guests to be a part of the invitation experience, so we came up with a unique and fun way for guests to reply. A mad-lib style reply card, allowing the guests to get creative in their responses – guests even got to tell the DJ what to play, or not to play! The reply cards were printed in a slightly larger size, giving plenty of room for guests to fill in the blanks.



The suite was finished off with an information card pointing guests to the wedding website, and a simple monogram tag and navy blue ribbon tying it all together. The pink edging is such a fun detail when the items are assembled!



Thanks Jackie!

Minyi + Brian’s Modern Watercolor Wedding Invitations

These beautiful wedding invitations from Meghan of And Here We Are mix whimsical watercolors and hand lettering with a modern chevron pattern for a Fall wedding at Brooklyn’s Prospect Park Boathouse. And the illustration of the bride and groom’s French bulldog on the RSVP? So cute!


From Meghan: Minyi and Brian had a fall Brooklyn wedding in the Prospect Park Boathouse. The wedding style was classic romance with a modern & fun twist, so we mixed a loose hand lettered script with watercolor backgrounds and chevron pattern, and also got to make a fun illustration of their French bulldog, Thor, for the RSVP postcards. Their colors were deep purple and succulent green; and Minyi loves all things sparkly, so metallic gold was a must.


The save the date and invitations feature hand-drawn letters and illustrations, which were then hand painted, letter press printed AND hot foil-stamped. They also included an after-party invitation on gold paper, and a tri-fold map of Brooklyn with some of Minyi & Brian’s favorite Brooklyn places listed. We printed a double run of the maps so that they could also be tucked into the welcome bags for out-of-town guests.



We also created loads of day-of goods including menus, programs, seating chart, signage, and place cards. The day-of items were mostly digitally printed, and the signs were hand painted with watercolor and gold leaf gilding.



 Thanks Meghan!

Becky + Alison’s Hand Lettered Rustic Wedding Invitations

These rustic wedding invitations from Kim at Bright Room Studio are just so pretty! Kim combined her own whimsical hand lettering and illustrated details with a nature-inspired color palette of green ink on kraft paper for a softer spin on rustic invitation design. And how gorgeous is that RSVP postcard? Love!


From Kim: This design was special to me. When California overturned Prop 8 back in 2013, I really wanted to do something to celebrate. So I decided to give away a custom designed invitation suite to a same sex couple. I received some amazing love stories, but the overall theme was that love really does conquer all. I could really feel the love just through the email from Becky and Alison so I selected them! They are the sweetest couple who love being outside, so the rustic invitation design was an obvious direction to go.


The design is entirely hand-lettered with lots of leafy and organic touches. The tree is an illustration of a tree that was very special to them, so it was the perfect emblem for their paper goods. We then letterpress printed the design in a deep green on kraft with a little pop of blue for the details card to represent the water. Becky and Alison are a really special couple and I’m so glad that they got to celebrate their wedding!





Thanks Kim!

Erin + Taylor’s Romantic Blush and Gray Wedding Invitations

Ah, blush and gray. Such a timeless color combination! Especially when paired with gorgeous calligraphy and elegant lace-inspired blind (no-ink) letterpress printed details. Which is exactly what Nichole from Coral Pheas­ant did with these romantic wedding invitations!


From NicholeErin and Taylor’s romantic and elegant invitation suite let guests know that this was a celebration not to be missed! Work­ing hand-in-hand with Erin and Sta­cie Shea Events, we cre­ated a beau­ti­ful wedding invitation suite putting a fresh spin on clas­sic ele­ments.


On the main invitation, angled type and calligraphy by Brown Linen Design are framed with a floral border blind debossed on double-thick Crane’s Lettra. The thick cotton stock allows the blind impression to be deep and visually prominent – but in a subtle way. Blush envelopes with coordinating vintage stamps add a dash of color. The entire suite was wrapped in delicate lace ribbon inspired by the bride’s gown and veil.




The paper elements came full circle at the wedding and reception, with design details carried over to the programs, place cards, event signage, blanket wraps and foil stamped menus. 


Thanks Nichole!
